I have an unfinished canary neck with a fat neck profile on the way. Can I sand the thing down a bit if it's feeling too girthy? Any words of warning? I've never taken sandpaper to a neck before...
He said "girthy," not "gritty."I found just playing them smooths them out. How would it get gritty by playing? It should be the reverse.
I really am not sure either, hence the risk.I guess my main concern is that I delve too deeply and find myself too close to the truss rod. Is the truss rod situated at the same depth below the fretboard regardless of the neck profile/thickness? And assuming that's the case, how thin would be too thin?
Also it is hard to keep everything perfectly symmetrical. I would stop worrying ahead of time and play it a bit when you get it. I like the fatbacks for lazy thumb over the top blues bending, but found it just a bit too uncomfortable for playing some other things.I really am not sure either, hence the risk.
